think a big part of it is that you need to understand that social change -- you don't wake up overnight and think i'm going to change the world. just like you said you want to or you make it other than a class project. you have to realize -- dream big for sure. i'm sorry that i didn't say you can't save the world and that's not going to happen overnight. social change does not come overnight but it does come incrementally and it comes by even having good dialogs like this today and i know it sounds cheesy but that's the first step people can realize because when you get those first jobs i can only speak only about washington-oriented jobs you may have graduated from the best universities or been the top of your class or feel that you really have a high aptitude and high grasp of issues but when you get there and if you're doing some remedial work you might feel downtrodden and why am i not talking to the press right now about why we need to have cap-and-trade legislation. realize the change will come incrementally both for the issues and they will come incrementally for your careers but

forward to reduce the deficit in a big way modeled after these bipartisan commissions, where there's been pretty good bipartisan agreeme agreement. but efforts to forge a grand compromise, bringing the deficit down by $4 trillion, have been abandoned by republican leaders over and over. i -- i have not supported every detail in these grand compromise efforts. i don't want to do anything to undermine medicare or social security or medicaid, programs that have worked for generations now and programs that millions of ohioans depend on, for middletown to ashtaboula to toledo and gallipolis. that's because i wanted a more balanced approach. i know the presiding officer did too. but as days and weeks and weeks and months go by, we're now only days away from default. we're simply running out of time. that's what the senate bill is about, protecting us from default. the spirit of continued compromise again, the majority leader has come forth with a plan to reduce the deficit by $2.2 trillion. it's truly a compromise because it meets the republicans' main criteria, it contains spending cuts to rou

. [ jack ] yeah, ts is pretty good. don't you have a big race today? don't worry, kevin, i've got it all covered. (cheering crowd) track announcer: and jamie mcmurray wins the brickyard 400. how'd we do? announcer: check out huge clearance savings at bass pro shops and our upcoming fall hunting classic. he was all like "oh no, i cannot do investing." next thing you know he's got a stunning portfolio. shhhh, you're welcome. [ male announcer ] e-trade. investing unleashed. >> all right. glad you're up. the debt ceiling deadline quickly approaching. we're less than one week away from possible default. so how will washington come together on a solution before tuesday's deadline? will they at all? former advisor to president bill clinton and author of "revolt" dick morris now joins us. dick, i know you have a lot to say about this and how this is all playing out. first off, as for the president, is this drama working for him? >> no. no, it's working against him. ultimately, whenever washington is a mess, it's the president that gets blamed for it. now, of course, republicans in congress get

. there was a big issue at the end of the last congress that threatened a meltdown over whether or not we were going to extend the package of tax cuts. then we have the cr, threatening to shut down of the government. now we are having a high-stakes game of chicken that could have significant implications for the global economy as well as devastation for what we face to going forward. and then you know what? we will be right back with that with the budget, not once but twice, before the election. most in the house want to see something that is more sustainable and allows us to get back to the business of helping all americans get back to work, rebuilding the country, and dealing with long-term solutions rather than short-term fixes to deal with theoretical issues with the budget. host: to be clear, if the reid proposal could come before the house, would you vote for it? guest: i have not seen it. i had a dinner with a friend of mine in the senate last night who says that they are interested in the details. they have not seen the details yet. i am not going to commit to something that no one i know ha

plan which he was struggling to get members to support. the big flaw in that plan he was on radio explaining it today. this select committee. who are the people? when are the cuts coming where are the cuts going to be? that was the flaw. all that aside. he's got another plan. the president has no plan. >> i was stunned they allowed the president to go to the east room by himself and give a partisan speech with no plan in place and calling on members of the public to call the members of congress. i heard today that calls were up but they weren't what the president wanted. it is saying don't cave. surprisingly the poll you just read 38% of the people who still think he's handling this well? that you don't have a plan that you can explain it. and ed henry now with fox news as a white house correspondent pressed today, pressed jay carney on why don't you have a plan? i can imagine how you explain why you don't. >> sean: we'll get into this in the next segment. it angers me now. that republicans are competing only with their own deal. the president gets to throw darts and say no, no, n

the national debt or we can allow big spenders to lead us further down the road of chronic deficits and leave our children and grandchildren saddled with debt that is not our own. the choice is ours. the stakes are high. failure is not an option. the speaker pro tempore: the chair now recognizes the gentlewoman from wisconsin, ms. moore. for five minutes. ms. moore: thank you, mr. speaker. i ask unanimous consent to be able to add extraneous material. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. ms. moore: mr. speaker, i had breakfast this morning. i had granola and yogurt, a little fruit, egg and bacon sandwich, and i'm feeling irritable because i didn't have my coffee. and i'm looking forward to a delicious lunch that i planned at about noontime. but in the meantime, on the horn of africa, 11 million people are facing starvation and not because they're lazy people or unworthy people but because they're suffering from the biggest drought that they have seen in 60 years, because they're experiencing flooding, because there are people who stepped away from the loving care that we us
